Every chapter has an ending. Next week marks the end of one of The Minimalists’ most significant chapters: our first film, Minimalism, is exiting Netflix on June 15, 2022.
This particular chapter began nine years ago, in late 2013, when The Minimalists teamed up with director Matt D’Avella to film our first documentary. We didn’t know what it would be called, who would be in it, or how it might influence the world; we simply piled into Ryan’s Corolla and filmed a thousand hours of tour stops, minimalist interviews, and sunset time-lapses.
It took two years,
but after nine grueling iterations,
we finally produced a film we were proud of.
(and every other streamer)
turned us down.
